A Look Inside Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion
(Click on Images to Enlarge)
|Trixie on a trip||Knuffle Bunny on a plane|
From School Library Journal
PreS-K–Knuffle Bunny goes international when Trixie and her family fly to Holland to see Oma and Opa. Trixie, excited and slightly sleepy, leaves her toy rabbit behind and doesn't miss him until the plane is on the way to China. Although the grown-ups encourage her to be brave because she's “getting bigger,” Trixie remains in a funk until she dreams about her special toy and all the children he encounters on his travels. Soon the visit ends, and Trixie is back on the plane where Knuffle Bunny is waiting in the seat pocket. Just when the story might end, Trixie shows just how brave (and grown up) she is. She gives him to a crying baby and becomes Knuffle Bunny free. At the end, Daddy includes a note to his daughter with the hope that the toy might return years later when she has her own child. Willems once again conveys a range of emotions through limited text and outstanding illustrations. His sensitivity to children's needs allows the humor to come through without devaluing the feelings. The familiar style of photographs with original drawings takes readers along on the journey from New York to Holland, but also from babyhood to childhood. Friends and fans of Knuffle Bunny will readily notice the passage of time since the lovable bunny made his first appearance. Mommy and Daddy have new hairdos, and Trixie is a big girl now. This one is a must-have.Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County

Oh, Trixie and family- how I love this trilogy of your life with Knuffle Bunny. Yes, I know these are meant for children, but really- this is also made for parents who can appreciate the humor in the details of a child's life with a favorite stuffed animal. Isn't there something in your child's life that has "traveled" with them through the baby years, toddlerhood, and then on to the big kid school days? Did you ever wonder when that attachment or focus would move on, thinking, "Aren't they getting too big for this?" And then one day, inexplicably, they do in such a way that you wonder where the hell you stuck your head in while your child went and got all mature about it?
This happens to Trixie and Knuffle Bunny in the last of the trilogy. Knuffle Bunny is set free, and he couldn't have ended up in a better way. But what is really weird about the epilogue in this book is that somehow Mo Willems ends up hiding secretly cut onions into the pages, because suddenly there are tears coming from your eyes, and you can't imagine why you are weeping over a children's book.
Well done, Mr. Willems. You made a grown woman cry.
